Microsoft Abandons Plan to Troll Windows 10 Users With Browser Warnings

Hey Internet, we did it! After a good outpouring of rage and annoyance towards Microsoft, we’ve forced the windows team to remove the messages “warning” you not to install Firefox or Chrome . They won’t be in theOctober 2018 Update.

In a comment given to Ed Bott over at ZDNet , a Microsoft spokesman said:

We’ve tested this functionality with Insiders only The Windows Insider Program enables Microsoft to test different features, functionality and garner feedback before rolling out broadly. Customers remain in control and can choose the browser of their choice.

These warnings have vanished from the currentInsider builds of Windows 10. They won’t be in the final version of the October 2018 Update, which will likely be released at some point in the next few weeks.

While this Microsoft spokesman calls this a “feature,” it’s worth nothing exactly what it was: A literal “warning” not to install Chrome or Firefox once you’ve downloaded it, interrupting the installation process. As we pointed out, this would train Windows users to ignore real security warnings.

Of course, the only reason this “test” was unsuccessful is because it enraged Windows 10 users more than usual. If this browser warning was just a feature that generated a normal amount of rage, like automatically installing Candy Crush Saga on Windows 10 Professional, Microsoft wouldn’t have backed off.

But today, let’s celebrate. We all stopped Microsoft from doing something dumb! The battle is won.

It would be nice if we didn’t have to fight battles with Microsoft in the first place, though.
